Default Pizza Bliss

Everything went great with our first pizza night! All I can is, wow!! The family just raved about every pizza, and we had so much fun. Definitely some lessons learned, but all in all, all the planning and research paid off as it went pretty smoothly.

From lighting the fire to oven being ready for baking with the floor ~750 deg took right around 80 minutes.

I started a little notebook, and am going to end up keeping a pizza diary to keep notes in, and let guests sign, etc.

Can't say enough good things about this FB Casa oven. It's made our pizza dreams come true!

After a 42-deg night last night, about 12 hours after I shut the oven door for the night, the pizza oven floor is still about 450 deg. Tonight I'm going to roast a chicken out there, and it will be interesting to see how much faster the oven comes up to temperature.

Great job!

It all looks like it is coming together very well. It is good to hear how the first pizza came out and that everyone enjoyed the experience. I'm looking forward to getting to that point.

So tonight, one day after the first pizza firing, I fired it up again and roasted a chicken in a pan. I wish I had a V-rack to turn the chicken better and get more even browning, but it still came out really nicely and everyone loved it.

The big lesson learned tonight was that this oven really holds its heat from the previous night. I built a pretty decent-sized fire and completely overheated it... I ended up having to take a couple logs out. I'd say that maybe I ended up using just 6 logs for the firing tonight.
